Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has sworn in 11 commissioners and two Special Advisers.
Speaking during the swearing-in ceremony, Obaseki urged them to imbibe transparency and uphold accountability as organisational performance scorecard has been developed for each ministry.
He charged them to serve the people rather than enriching themselves.
“The scorecard will be deployed in tracking key performance targets and deliverables of each Ministry and reports will be demanded on a quarterly basis.”
“A formal assessment of performance targets and results achieved by each Ministry shall be conducted. These shall form the basis of further review and linkages to other key human resource processes.”
He said they had no choice but to meet and deliver on the expectations of the people by becoming champions of high performance in execution and results-oriented.
He urged them to embrace the six Pillars of the MEGA Agenda and ensure it constitutes a rallying platform that that will industrialise, transform and build the capacity required to take advantage of the state natural endowments.
The commissioners are Joseph Eboigbe (Finance), Prof. Obehi Akoria (Health), Mrs. Otse Momoh-Omorogbe (Budget and Planning), Dr. Joan Osa Oviawe, (Education) and Isoken Omo (Physical Planning and Urban Development).
Others are Moses Agbukor (Water Resources), Ethan Uzamere (Mining, Gas and Oil), Maria Edeko (Social Development and Gender), Monday Osaigbovo (Local Government), Andrew Emwanta (Communication and Orientation), while Oluwole Iyamu is Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice.
